Booval is a suburb of Ipswich, with a population of 2,622 people.
It spans Brisbane Road, the main arterial link to the Ipswich Motorway.
This road is also where Booval Fair shopping centre is located. It offers major chain stores, including Big W and Woolworths. Meanwhile, South Station Rd and Brisbane Rd host a number of smaller businesses.
Booval was originally a cotton plantation, but is now a combination of residential and commercial area.
The suburb is close to essential amenities, including bus and railway services, schools, and parks and sports facilities.
There are various pests that threaten residential and commercial spaces in Booval. Here they are:
Timber is a popular material for homes, decks and verandas, thanks to parcels of sloping and almost year-round sunny weather. Unfortunately, timber is food for termites.
Termites can cause thousands of dollars’ worth in damages to residential or commercial properties. Because of this, getting regular inspections and making sure you have termite treatment/barriers in place can save you a lot of money in the long term.
Cockroaches are one of the most common pests that can invade a building. Bit regardless of how common they are, a cockroach infestation must be removed and treated immediately.
Their ability to transmit diseases to humans is a serious problem and the primary reason for their pest status. Cockroaches contaminate food, utensils and food preparation areas with their droppings, shed skins, empty egg cases, dead bodies and vomit.
When a cockroach infestation has turned serious, you will notice an unpleasant odour, which comes from the secretions from their mouths and cuticle. This is one of the modes by which cockroaches can transmit diseases to people.
Life can turn unpleasant and dangerous if your home is harbouring rats or mice. They can multiply fast and gnaw on cables, pipes, telephone wires and hoses. Their urine leaves a strong and strange odour.
What is worst is that rats and mice can transmit diseases to humans. They can leave pathogens all over your house through their droppings, which can make the occupants feel sick if exposed to those pathogens.
Standard control measure like bites often become ineffective in the long run. For long-term control and treatment, call for help from professional pest controllers.

These silver-grey, wingless pests are often found in basements, garages, bathrooms, and other places that are cool, dark and dusty.
Silverfish are not known to cause health problems, but they can be a great nuisance and inconvenience. They love anything with starch, including papers, clothing, textile, wallpapers, etc. They can destroy your personal belongings if left untreated for a long time.
Spiders are unwelcome guests because they are creepy and because some people really do have a fear of spiders. There are various species of spiders, which all play a vital role in controlling the population of other pests or insects.
Most species of spiders are harmless, but they are those that are venomous, delivering bites that can be very painful and fatal, if not treated properly.
If you have pets, children and elderly in your home, it is particularly important to get rid of spiders immediately.
Ants are social insects that live in nests. Their nests are mainly located in soil, wood or rocks. They are common pests in homes and commercial places.
You will often find ants around foundations, in walls, roof voids, kitchens, lawns and gardens, decaying wood and rocks. Ants are hard workers, foraging for food and water and taking these back to their nest.
They are considered as pests because aside from being a nuisance, ants are also known to pose a health risk. Due to the fact that they usually hang out in dirty places, ants carry harmful pathogens in their bodies. Ants contaminate food, which when accidentally consumed can cause various illnesses.

High – Very High Risk
According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Ipswich area, where Booval is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.
Because Booval is close to the sea, the area is a good target by drywood termites, which need high moisture content in the timber they attack.
Throughout Queensland, the most commonly found termites are Subterranean termites and Drywood termites.
The West Indian drywood termite, is the world’s most destructive drywood termite. It is the culprit to massive economic damage to timber houses in Queensland, including properties in Booval.
